Caught in The Web

They're caught in a web.

Their school picture suggests cloudy days at the Rhawnhurst School, but a visit to their website reveals sunny days inside. Located in the School District of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Rhawnhurst is a K-5 school where "computer technology is being integrated throughout the curriculum."

Even though the school's online effort is just underway, they offer several exciting resources for the online educational community. The Monthly Computer Project, for example, offers an interesting idea for integrating the new technology with existing curriculum goals.

The fifth grade students at Rhawnhurst are pioneers in the Spotlight. Much of their work is available online. They have compiled and published their list of favorite books. They have also published some of their creations for Poetry Month. They learned about both tercets and bio poems. Alexandra's tercet titled "Life" is particularly rich. It's so simple, yet so meaningful. Also notice Marian's bio poem on Amelia Earhart. It truly captures the spirit of the aviator.

Their School Calendar keeps everyone up to date on school events, but it also highlights some of the outstanding students at Rhawnhurst. There are many, and the website suggests that the school is working together to make sure that every student is outstanding.

Be sure to visit Rhawnhurst Elementary this month. You'll find it time well spent.
